Golden Wuyi Mountain Longan (Dimocarpus longan) is a wonderful and delicious tonic fruit used by the Chinese as a blood tonic, to build energy (Qi), to calm the mind, to strengthen the Spleen, to tonify the Qi of the heart, and to add luster and beauty to the skin. Its Chinese name is Long Yan Rou, which means “Dragon Eye Meat.” Of course, being a fruit, it is not really “meat.” Longan (“dragon eye”) is so named because when the fruit is fresh, the flesh of the peeled fruit is a translucent white color. The dark brown seed shows through the translucent flesh and looks like the pupil of an eye. As a result, the fruit looks like the bulging eyes of the dragons often depicted in Chinese art. The dried fruit is one of China’s greatest delicacies. The best Longan grows in southern China in the foothills of the Wuyi Mountains. The seed has been removed. Wuyi Longan Fruit™ becomes a lovely golden color and has a unique flavor unlike any other dried fruit.
There is a saying in Chinese herbalism that “women are governed by blood.” As a result, women often benefit significantly from blood tonics. Longan is a great blood tonic, often combined with other blood tonics such as Dang Gui and Peony root to make blood-building teas and formulations.

Longan is an herb that must be selected very carefully. The “aril,” which is the sweet fleshy fruit meat, is extremely delicious. The dried fruit obtainable at herb shops is priced based on its flavor and sweetness. Therefore, some producers soak their Longan in sugar water to enhance its sweetness. Dragon Herbs uses only the highest quality Longan, and this Longan is unsweetened — it is sweet enough without the sugar and is much better for you than sugar-soaked Longan. There is no problem consuming Dragon Herbs Wuyi Longan Fruit™ every day of your life.
